Amy MackinWelcome! I’m a writer, researcher, and educator addressing issues at the intersection of media, cultural history, and social equity. My work appears or is forthcoming in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Shriver Report, Brain Child, Literary Mama, Ploughshares, Witness, and The Writer’s Chronicle, among others.

Please visit often. I hope to offer words that inform, amuse, or cause you to think about something familiar in a whole new way. I am inspired, every day, by those around me—the challenges and struggles they experience, as well as all the joys and triumphs. I never tire of hearing their stories … or telling my own.
